another overwatch portrait. thought that GOT quote fits quite well to Hanzo :) though truth be told, I just needed an excuse to draw Hanzo’s profile cause I’m in love with it. especially his crooky nose! people with promiment features are my favourite n I don’t draw nearly enough of them :/

however, it still pains me everytime I play OW that I’m utterly incapable of playing him V_V   I think I might be a lot better with snipers in general if I’d be playing on PC but oh well~ *got enough other chars in my hand*

この寄せ書きは私の最高の思い出です。
しかし、作るにあたって、私の最初の思惑とは非常にズレてしまいました。
その経緯も含め、記録しておこうと考えました。

This ”yosegaki” is my best memory.
However, when make, It has deviated from my first expectations very much.
I thought, I wrote this in tumblr.

(This stain is a drool of Historia.  be careful of over-drinking)

当初、私は皆に、FC:CROOKIESのラスベガスでの足跡と、これからの思いを書いてもいらい

その証人として、皆で吉田Pさんのサインを貰おうと考えていました。
At first I told everyone.We write a record in Las Vegas of “FC:CROOKIS”, thought in the future.
As a witness, in all, was thinking with the Get a sign of Yoshi-P


海外には寄せ書きと言う風習は無い??ようで、それを説明するのに

英語の話せない私は、知ってるしょっぱい単語とジェスチャー、寄せ書きのサンプルサイトを見せて
コンコンと説明しました。皆はそれを理解し、それぞれ何を書こうか考えはじめました。
(google先生ありがとう)

The foreign countries seems there is no “group efforts”.I thought like to explain that to everyone as well,
However, I can not speak English Orz,I few English words and gestures, showed a sample web site.
A long explanation, everyone understand, began to think that the writing each.
(thank you google sensei)


しかし、フェスティバル初日に私はトラブルを抱えてしまいました。
そのトラブルの解決の為にフェスティバル2日間、ホテル内を走り回る結果となりました。
宿泊しているホテルにはLanguageサービスも無い様で、日本語の話せる人は呼んでもらえなかった。
そんな中、精神的な疲労に耐えかねた妻は寝込んでしまいました。
私は友人たちには心配掛けたくないので、時々顔を出して、ホテル側と交渉しながら、
妻の様子をみながら、ホテル内を奔走していました。
(まぁ結局最後は頼りましたが・・・ Orz)
However, I have had trouble on the first day of the festival.
For the resolution of the trouble, festival for two days, was the result of run around in the hotel.
The stayed hotel was not found Language services.People can speak Japanese did not come.
Meanwhile, his wife fell to the fatigue’s asleep.
I do not want to spend worry to friends、Sometimes together with friends face、To negotiate the hotel.
Looking at the state of my wife、While doing these three things, I was running around the hotel.
(Well after all.  It relied・・・. Orz)


結局私がこんな状態だったので、皆は寄せ書きの内容に頭を悩ませていたようです。
ファンフェスの最終日、私が奔走している間に、気を効かせて、anaが吉田Pさんに
サインを貰ってきてくれました。本当に助かった・・・
(何もかも終わるところだった・・・ana ありがとう ;v;)
全てのイベントが終わり、CROOKISの色紙に、それぞれペンをとって
書き始めました。
After all because I was such a state, everyone seems to have plagued the contents of the “yosegaki”.

Really helped us was …
(thank you ana! ;v;)
End all the events, to “yosegaki”, everyone began to write each.



最終私が書き終えた後、これをリーダーである、gucciに預かってもらうように言いましたが
メンバー全員に拒否されました。
寄せ書きの内容を読むようにと皆に言われ良く読んでいると、全て私と妻宛の寄せ書きに変わっていました。
After the final I finished writing, I said this to keep to a leader gucci.
However, it was denied to all members.
everyone said “you read the carefully!”.I’ve read.All were “yosegaki” to me and my wife.



私がファンフェスを楽しんで無いのを知っていて、最後に思い出だけでもと言う配慮が詰まった
寄せ書きでした。
everyone,fan festival knew that I did not enjoy.It was packed “yosefaki” of the caring.

言葉が話せず、コミュニケーションもロクに取れない私の様な者に
こんなに温かい心が詰まった贈り物が貰えるとは予想していませんでした。
この寄せ書きは宝物です。大事にします。
私は、このメンバーが友人で本当に良かったと思いました。
本当に感謝しています。
English does not speak, communication not be able almost to me.

next! see you in Las Vegas! or Tokyo!

I’ve been thinking about the food symbolism on Supernatural lately. In the mid-season finale, The Things We Left Behind 10.09, Dean was binge eating comfort foods in an attempt to repress his emotions

The specific foods he ate were burgers, fries, grilled cheese, and hot dogs. Those are all foods we’d expect Dean to eat. They’re also classic Americana foods that symbolize the “good old days” of the baby boomer generation

Since we’ve come back from hiatus, Dean’s eating patterns have been very different. That’s significant considering food has always been a big part of his character. In Slash Fiction 7.06 they said Dean eats a burger every day “and in his heart, he thinks they’re almost as good as sex.” We haven’t seen Dean eat a burger since before the hiatus even though we’ve seen him eat many times

He started out by trying the healthy foods he has so staunchly resisted all these years. Even when the Leviathan were using high fructose corn syrup to enslave humanity Dean balked at the idea of eating fruits and veggies. He did it because he knew it was necessary but he didn’t exactly do it willingly. In There’s No Place Like Home 10.11 it was Dean’s idea to eat healthy. He knew from the first bite that he didn’t like it but he kept trying other health foods before deciding Sam’s way of life didn’t work for him

In About a Boy 10.12 he was given cake. We all know how he reacted the last time that happened

But in About a Boy he took a bite and seemed to be enjoying it. Plenty has been written on the pie/cake straight/bi metaphor so I wont go into it but the fact is teen!Dean was enjoying his cake until someone else told him he shouldn’t. Also, it was stated in Slash Fiction that Dean rates food enjoyment against sexual enjoyment so using food as sex metaphors makes perfect sense for this character

The latest episode, Halt and Catch Fire 10.13, opened with Dean flaunting a croissookie (real name crookie if you’d like to search for a recipe/places to buy them)

Dean stated they were the new cronut, which is a food item that faced a weird amount of controversy when it debuted in New York. Many people loved the cronut, other people wrote scathing articles about how it symbolized America’s willingness to hop on bandwagons like with the cupcake craze. One thing that was often brought up was that the cup cake craze attracted mainly women but cronuts attracted all genders. All of the negative cronut bloggers agreed on one thing, they said it was just a phase and America would eventually get over it. Obviously it wasn’t a phase because cronuts are still around and inspiring new croissant concoctions. destielfromperdition wrote a great meta on the croissookie being a metaphor for bisexuality. One thing that every bisexual has been told about our sexuality is that it’s just a phase and we’ll  get over it

Later, in the cafeteria, Dean states “college is better than Vegas” because of all the food. Dean is faced with a variety of choices but he doesn’t go for his beloved burger or pie even though those would definitely be on offer in a college cafeteria

“I got Italian. I got Chinese. Serve yourself froyo.” He’s exploring other food options. Something often associated with the American college experience is sexual exploration now that you’re no longer under the watchful eye of your parents

Over the years Dean has been shown enjoying a variety of foods but they never go very long without a scene of him eating his standard favorites of burgers and pie (or at least asking for pie and not getting it). So far in the second half of season 10 we’ve had at least 6 scenes of Dean eating and none of them were his established favorites. In this meta I talked about how Dean is redefining himself this season and rethinking the parts of his personality that he absorbed from his father. As I said earlier the foods we commonly associate with Dean are symbolic of John’s generation, it’s very likely Dean took on his father’s eating habits. The second half of season 10 started with Dean trying Sam’s eating habits. Now he’s branching out and trying whatever he finds interesting. That’s a perfect metaphor for how most people discover their sexuality. We start out being told we’ll be just like our parents and assume that it’s true. Later, we look at our friends or other familiy members and wonder if our sexuality might be more like theirs. In the end we have to go our own way and figure it out for ourselves

185 calorie single serving cookie brownies (BROOKIES) for sweet cravings yumm. Just line 18 muffin cups and fill with betty crocker fudge brownie mix and place 2 tbsb balls of betty crocker snack size chocolate chip cookie dough on top (or whatever cookie/brownie batter you want.) Bake at 350 for 25-35 min until toothpick comes out clean. 

BTW each betty crocker mix is only $1 at the dollar store! The pouches not the boxes

hi lassies. who would be a doll and make a prompt in which claire comforts baby bree wrapping her around jamie kilt? it is a claire tatic to calm down bree baby every time she doesnt know what else to do about it. tia

Èirigh na Grèine

Brianna bounced on her mother’s hip while eagerly sucking her thumb. A garbled “Da!” could be heard around her small thumb as the pair gazed out the second story window.

“Yes my darling, your Da is outside.” Claire said smiling, and leaning over, kissed the top of her daughter’s bright red head. The color a brighter shade of her father’s, but the curly texture was that of her mother’s.

“Da! Want Da! Go to Da!” Brianna chanted, emphasizing ‘Da’ with a bounce. Claire laughed at the enthusiasm of her daughter.

“Alright, love. Let’s bring your father a treat? Shall we?” Claire was met with even more enthusiastic bounces followed by small chubby arms whacking her in the face as the small child squealed in delight.

Gathering a discarded plaid from the settee by the hearth, Claire wound it around herself and Brianna before setting off to the kitchens for a treat of sweets and whiskey for Jamie.

“Mrs. Crook?” Claire called out, searching for a basket to carry.

Popping up from behind the counter, the old, kindly woman responded. “Yes Mistress?”

“Have you seen my gathering basket? I could have sworn I left it by the door.” Claire said at the same time Brianna squealed with a laugh.“Crooky! Sweets! Bee wants sweets!”

“Haha, you do, do you little Mistress? Weel I dinna ken if yer Mam would like it if I gave ye sweets.” Mrs. Crook cooed, bending over to tickle the underneath of Brianna’s chin. “As for yer basket, Mistress, I believe Mistress Murray took it out with wee Jamie to gather more potatoes from the drying shed. Can I help ye wi’ the gathering?”

“Oh! No, thank you Mrs. Crook. I wanted to take Jamie a basket of treats. I suppose this flask of whiskey and whatever will fit in my pockets will do.” Claire smiled, hoisting Brianna up higher as she shoved a linen wrapped tart into her pocket.

“Ach! Dinna do that Mistress! Ye’ll ruin yer garb for sure. Here, take this.” Mrs. Cook pulled out a sling of fabric, gently placing it over Claire’s head so that it fell to the opposite side of where Brianna was seated.

“This will work for a wee treat. Dinna fill his belly too much, I’m making venison pie for supper.”

Smiling, Claire grabbed Mrs. Crook’s weathered hand, “Thankyou, Mrs. Crook.”

“Ye are welcome Mistress. Now get going, yer ween looks like she’s about to burst from excitement.” She laughed, steering Claire out of the kitchen and towards the fields.

“Bee see Da! Bee see Da!! Mam see Da?” Bree bounced excitedly.

“Yes, Bree, Mama sees Da.” Claire laughed tightening the plaid around them.

Brianna huffed and pushed at the plaid. “Bee no want blankie. Bee want fee!”

“Oft!” Claire exclaimed as Brianna’s small foot made purchase with her stomach. “Careful love. You have to have the blanket around you, it’s too cold not to. When we get to your father, then you can be free long enough to jump into his arms.”

“Bee be fee!” She squealed.

As they drew closer to Jamie, Bree began bouncing harder making it difficult for Claire to keep her grip on the wiggling girl.

“DA! DA! DA! DA! DA! DA!”

Jamie’s head whipped to the side, a smile spreading across his face. He tossed the pitchfork to the ground and quickly made his way to the two people who made up his entire world. Leaning down he gave Claire a heated kiss while wrapping his arms tightly around her and their daughter.

“Da! Bee want fee wi’ Da!” The impatient little girl cried as she struggled to wrap her arms around her father.

Jamie laughed and plucked Bree out of her mother’s arms, settling her on his own hip. Bree’s eyes went wide as her small curls blew in the wind. “Cold! Bee cold! Bee want blankie!”

“I told you, it was too cold to be without the blanket.” Claire chastised.

Bree wiggled in her father’s arms, burying her face deep into his neck while reaching out with one hand to her mother, longing for the warmth of the plaid she took advantage of moments before.

Jamie chuckled as he pulled up the bottom overflow of his kilt, tucking it around his daughter’s chin.

“Da.” He felt her sigh and relax into him, content to be there. Her small hand reached up, tangling itself into his hair, anchoring herself further into her father’s embrace.

“We brought you a treat.” Claire said, pulling the wrapped pastries from the sling as well as the flask of whiskey.

Jamie’s eyes crinkled in a smile. “Thank ye, Sassenach.” He said reaching his free hand out grab the—now open—flask.

Together they ate the pastries Mrs. Crook had made, keeping up a light banter of conversation until Bree became limp on her father’s chest. Soft snores came from the child while Jamie and Claire snuggled under a single plaid, basking in the joy of their perfect little family.
